I was attempting to hook a Playstation 2 up to it using audio/video cables (red, white, yellow). I get the sound from the video games, but the TruTech screen only displays the main "TruTech DVD" picture. Is there anyway to play video games on this? Thank you.

Hi, firstly some terminology: yellow cable - video composite (worst quality) white/red - stereo analog audio blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)
You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.
If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.
For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.
For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.
It is possible that the RCA cable is no good. The yellow = video, the red and white = audio. The input on the TV may be bad, try switching from one input on the TV to another if you have one available. Even if you don't have a free one, remove a DVD player or something else that may be hooked up and try to hook up the Playstation to that input using those RCA wires. This way you can eliminate the port and the wire being bad at the same time. If all else fails and the PS2 works on other TVs, the only option left would be a problem with the TV you are trying to hook it up to. I have that problem on one TV I own, one of the RCA inputs (input 4) is no good. I hope this helps.
1. Connect your VCR to your TV. (Using Antena cable or RCA cables.)
2. From your DVD player, choose the AUDIO VIDEO OUT. Then, connect that to your VCR's LINE IN jacks.
(*)Your DVD player has 3 jacks coming out. Yellow-video, White- Audio Left and Red- Audio Right.
If you VCR does not have the RED jack. Go to a radio shack and tell on of the sales person taht you need to connect 2 RCA audio outs to 1 RCA audio in. (He/ She will give you a "2RCA Male to 1RCA Female" splitter)
3. Finally, play your DVD, put your VCR channel in TV and most important select the LINE channel in your VCR. (This channal may called as L1, Line,... etc)
You should be seeing the DVD in your TV now.
If you want to play the VCR, just put the casset and play.
Important- The VCR needs to be powered on in order to the DVD signals to go to the TV.
I have got a Finlux plasma television and i cant find my instructions. I have just been given a play station 2 and i have put it all correct in my television but its not coming up on my screen. I dont know what channel to put it on, please can you help me!?
This is a bit confusing. You cannot hook a CD/DVD player up to the PS2 console. If your trying to figure how to hook a PS2 console and a CD /DVD player up to a AV system. you need to hook the PS2 Yellow, White and Red cables to any input. Not just a DVD or CD input. Yellow is Video you need that. Hook the red and white to the same selected input.
USE a VCR between the PS2 and the Sylvania TV. Hook the PS2 A/V cable RCA connectors( Red, Yellow, White) to one of the the Video input RCA connectors( Yellow, Red, White) on the VCR. Hook the VCR Cable output to your Sylvania Cable input. Set the Sylvania Tv to channel 3 or 4. Set the VCR channel to Line 1 or Line 2. This should work. I hope it helps you.
Using the composite video connection method is pretty straightforward. you will be dealing with one video cable (marked in Yellow), and two audio cables (marked in White and Red) Red is right channel and white is left channel if stereo, if mono use the white marked cable.
Look at the back of your DVD player you will see the video out RCA jack (marked in yellow) plug one end of the video cable into this jack, the plug the other end of the cable into the TVs Video In jack (marked in yellow)
Then plug the audio cables into the Audio Out RCA jacks of the DVD player Red marked cable to red jack White Marked cable to white jack. After this is done plug the ends of the sother side of the cable into the Audio input of the TV white to white, red to red.
At this point you should have video and audio once you set the menu of your tv to accept input from the Composite input and the audio jacks.
I hope this helps.
